Strategic Clinical Networks are the engines for change in the health system. Teams composed of researchers, physicians, patients and managers work in specific areas of health with the goal of finding new and innovative ways of delivering care that will provide better quality, better outcomes and better value for every Albertan.

We work with the SCNs to help develop a culture and capacity for research development and use in the health system.

The following are Alberta’s Strategic Clinical Networks:

  1. Addiction and Mental Health
  2. Bone and Joint Health
  3. Cancer
  4. Cardiovascular Health and Stroke

In 2014 Alberta Innovates (formerly Alberta Innovates — Health Solutions and Alberta Health Services hosted the 2014 SCN Connects conference. Clinicians, researchers, patient advocates and members of the health care community participated in a collaborative learning atmosphere. The focus was on supporting the development of the SCNs and highlighting their successes to date.
